Sponsorship

The Caribbean Mobile Innovation Project (CMIP) is inviting sponsors to partner with us in the execution of what promises to be an exciting PitchIT Caribbean Challenge regional series of events.

If you belong to a corporation or entity that share our vision of identifying, engaging and developing top talent in the app development ecosystem in CARICOM toward the development of high-quality sustainable businesses that satisfy needs on a global scale, then we could partner for this Challenge. Review our sponsorship packages below and feel free to get in touch with us to talk about your role in this event.

On June 3-4, 2016, 25 mobile app development startups (teams of 2 persons) from across the Caribbean will pitch to judges in the PitchIT Caribbean Startup Challenge at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, Jamaica. The Judging Panel will comprise angel investors, venture capitalists, business founders, app development specialists and members of the business community. This is the first in a series of at least three such events to be held over the next 20 months.

Through an intensive social media and direct marketing campaign, the PitchIT Caribbean Challenge is expected to attract invaluable individual, business, tech community and media attention from across the Caribbean, from our donor territory, Canada, the World Bank global networks and from collaborators as far as Africa and Finland.
